IT Health Check
Ensure that IT security controls are in place to protect your business
The Public Services Network (PSN) is the government’s high-performance network, which helps public-sector organisations work together, reduce duplication and share resources. It enables commercial service providers to sell services where they can be accessed securely by public-sector organisations on the PSN.
As systems and data are increasingly connected across the public sector through the PSN, there is a need to make sure that the data handled on the network is secure and protected in transit. This can be achieved through an IT health check (ITHC).
Our IT health check solution
We can undertake an analysis of your chosen systems and network to identify any vulnerabilities that may compromise the confidentiality, integrity or availability of the information you hold. We will help you scope your IT health check to ensure it is a worthwhile exercise and provides you with the correct level of assurance.

"I personally find the final report provided by IT Governance to be excellent…. It contains the depth of knowledge I require to accurately and effectively determine our system security improvement plan for the next 12 months."

Why is an IT Health Check important?
There is a requirement for an annual ITHC in line with the Code of Connection (CoCo). Failure to comply with the security controls defined in the CoCo may lead to disconnection from the PSN network, affecting the ability to connect with other public-sector bodies.
The ITHC is designed to provide assurance that your external and internal systems are protected from unauthorised access or change through assessments of protective monitoring controls and remote working devices, as well as others.
You should use this service if:
You need to meet the requirements set out in the PSN CoCo;
You are currently connected to the PSN;
You need to plan this year’s PSN CoCo compliance and submission; or
You require a remediation action plan to help address any critical or high-risk issues for vulnerabilities that are yet to be addressed.

Reduce costs and get accurate results with IT Governance’s expert testing
We can undertake an analysis of your chosen systems and network to identify any vulnerabilities that may compromise the confidentiality, integrity or availability of your information. We will help you scope your ITHC to conduct a tailored risk assessment, designed to demonstrate to the PSN authority that your network is secure and does not represent an unacceptable risk to the security of the PSN or PSN data.
Our penetration testing follows an established methodology based primarily on the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) and Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM) standards.
